Comprehensive Neuro-Optometric Assessment

  • A thorough examination to identify visual problems related to neurological disorders. This includes assessments of eye movements, visual field, visual information processing, and more.

  • Benefits: Pinpointing the exact visual issues allows for a tailored treatment plan, leading to faster and more efficient recovery.

Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation

Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation is an individualized treatment regimen for patients with visual deficits due to physical disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, and other neurological insults. This specialized branch of optometry combines principles from neurology and rehabilitation with the functional aspects of vision.

Key Services Offered:

  • Comprehensive Neuro-Optometric Assessment: A detailed examination to identify visual issues arising from neurological events or conditions.  Such as concussion, stroke, and other brain injuries. This includes evaluations of eye coordination, focusing, tracking, and visual processing abilities.

  • Visual Field Rehabilitation: Therapeutic approaches to enhance or compensate for areas of vision loss.

  • Oculomotor Training: Techniques designed to improve control, efficiency, and accuracy of eye movements, essential for activities such as reading or scanning the environment.

  • Visual Perception Therapy: Interventions to address problems related to how the brain interprets and processes visual information.

  • Optical Therapies: The use of specialized lenses or prisms to assist in managing and alleviating symptoms associated with neuro-visual disorders.

  • Visual-Vestibular Integration Therapy: Treatments aimed at harmonizing the visual system with the vestibular (balance) system to reduce symptoms like dizziness or unsteadiness.

  • Patient Education & Counseling: Providing valuable information to patients and their families about the nature and implications of neuro-visual problems, aiding in better understanding and self-management.

Through Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation, patients can experience improved function in daily activities, reduced visual strain, better balance and posture, and an enhanced quality of life. This multidisciplinary approach ensures a holistic view of the patient’s needs, emphasizing the essential role of vision in our daily lives.

Concussion, Stroke, & other Brain Injury

Visual disturbances can significantly impede daily activities and overall quality of life for individuals who have experienced a concussion, TBI, or stroke. Neuro-optometric rehabilitation can play a crucial role in their recovery process:

  • Individualized Assessment: A comprehensive evaluation to understand the individual's specific visual challenges.

  • Tailored Treatment Plans: Based on the assessment, a plan might include specialized lenses, prisms, therapies, or exercises.

  • Collaborative Approach: Often, recovery from these conditions requires a team of professionals. A neuro-optometrist will collaborate with neurologists, therapists, and other healthcare providers to ensure holistic care.

  • Patient Empowerment: Through education, therapy, and guidance, patients can understand their visual challenges and actively participate in their recovery journey.


Vision & Vestibular Disorders

Rehabilitation focuses on improving coordination between the visual and vestibular systems to reduce symptoms and improve daily function.

  • Individualized Assessment: An extensive evaluation to understand the patient's specific challenges, considering visual and vestibular inputs.

  • Adaptive Strategies: Teaching patients strategies to cope with and minimize symptoms. This might include specific ways of moving or reorienting oneself.

  • Therapeutic Exercises: Targeted exercises to strengthen the connection between visual and vestibular systems. This might involve balance exercises, visual tracking tasks, or specific head and body movements.

  • Optical Interventions: Use specific lenses, prisms, or filters to help mitigate some of the visual disturbances related to vestibular disorders.

  • Collaborative Approach: Recovery and management often require a multidisciplinary team, including neuro-optometrists, audiologists, physical therapists, and others, to provide comprehensive care.



Rehabilitation aims to maximize the individual's remaining vision and help them adapt to their visual limitations.

  • Comprehensive Low Vision Evaluation: This assessment determines the extent of visual impairment and identifies ways to enhance remaining vision.

  • Vision Enhancement Devices: Introduction and training with magnifiers, telescopic glasses, large-print reading materials, and electronic visual aids.

  • Adaptive Techniques: Teaching strategies to perform daily activities differently, like using increased lighting, high contrast settings, or tactile markers.

  • Environmental Modifications: Recommendations for home or workplace modifications, such as improved lighting, contrasting colours, or specific placement of furniture, to enhance safety and functionality.

  • Electronic Aids: Introducing and training with digital tools, like screen readers, voice-assisted technology, or apps designed specifically for individuals with low vision.

  • Referral and Collaboration: Connecting patients with support groups, occupational therapists, or mobility trainers to ensure comprehensive care.
